The football fever has taken control all over Europe and this is more than obvious in this week's German singles chart. Thus, David Guetta and Zara Larsson soar 18 positions to claim the number one slot with the Euro 2016 hymn "This One's For You". Germany has already seen football-related songs being #1 many times before, while the latest marks the fourth David Guetta song to reach the top next to "Sexy Bitch", "Lovers On The Sun" and "Dangerous". Zara Larsson came close to number one last year with her debut in Germany "Lush Life" peaking at #4.
At #2 and also boosted by its connection to the football tournament we can find Max Giesinger's "80 Millionen", which last week was at #25. This is by far the biggest success of Max, who became known via The Voice Of Germany.
Also new inside the top ten, at #5, is "Wir sind groß" of Mark Forster, up from #12, as the song is used by TV ZDF to soundtrack the football matches. This is Mark's second top ten single as a lead artist after "Au revoir" reached #2 in 2014.
"Ain't Your Mama" of Jennifer Lopezcontinues its upward trend and is up this time two to #11. Imany makes it to the top 20 with her smash "Don't Be So Shy (Filatov & Karas Remix)" climbing from #31 to #13. We can expect the track to be in the top ten in the next weeks. Also joining the top 20 is "I Hate U, I Love U" of Gnash ft. Olivia O'Brien, it goes up three to #18.
Felix Jaehn & Herbert Grönemeyer and their collaboration called "Jeder für Jeden" benefit from both being used as an anthem for Euro 2016 and from finally having a video. It skyrockets from #71 to #27.
Drake ft. Rihanna and "Too Good" rise two to #30, while The Strumbellas and "Spirits" are also up two to #31. German hip-hop duo 257ers have its second top 40 single in the shape of "Holland". The song climbs to #35 from #46. In 2014 their single "Baby du riechst" peaked at #14.
In the LP chart Volbeat stick to #1 with "Seal The Deal & Let's Boogie" for a second week in a row. It is followed by the live album "Clean Your Clock" of Motörhead at #2, while U2 enter at #3 with a live album as well. It is titled "Innocence + Experience - Live in Paris". Rapper Chakuza is new at #5 with "Noah".
